    We send our sympathy and thoughts to Marg, Brad, Natalie and families on the passing of Jack.
    We remember him as the coach of Adrian’s junior football team. He gave Adrian a great start to the sport that he loves. Adrian is still playing Super rules football in Q.L.D. at age 45.
    Our thoughts are with you all at this very difficult time.
    Regards Tom & Diane Fidler

    My very sincere and deep felt sympathy on the passing of Jack. My heart goes out to you and your families. Words fail to express my sorrow for your loss.
    A man who taught me so much, who always made time and whom I had the upmost respect for. So many memories flooding back, all good.

    Rest in peace Jack, my friend.

    Dear Marg, Brad, Suz, Harry, Mitchell and Lachie, Natalie, Amaya and Jackson.
    Sadly, we cannot be with you to farewell Jack, there are so many treasured childhood memories of Jack to hold dear today: the camping, fishing, family holidays, school holidays spent in Maldon, being your flower girl all those years ago. In later years, Jack being MC at our wedding, arguments over card games on our Murray River cruise and Jack’s smile and laughter. Testament to a life well lived. So loved, respected and greatly missed. We are with you in spirit today and sending much love and big hugs across the miles.
    Karen, Rod, Luke, Emma, Simon and Rosie
